New York is a fantastic place to visit – there is so much to see and do there. Unless you’re able to afford a holiday for a long period of time though, you need to make sure you prioritise where you want to visit otherwise you won’t get to see everything that you want to. Also, I’d advise that you plan some different types of trips into your schedule, otherwise sightseeing can get a bit tiring after a while.
For example, you can go and see a baseball game quite easily. There is usually a game on most days during the season, and tickets aren’t difficult to get unless it is a big game. We went to see the New York Mets, and it was a good experience, although the game itself wasn’t the best. The great thing about baseball is all the food stalls dotted around the stadium!
The National History Museum is also a fun place to visit, although you really need a whole day if you want to see everything. If you want something that doesn’t require a lot of walking then it may not be the best choice though, because it is a huge place and there is a lot to see.
Another place to see is Chinatown. Although some people say it’s a bit too touristy it’s still worth visiting – even if you just want to say you’ve been there.
The most important thing is planning what you want to see! Otherwise you could waste your trip, although you’re still bound to have fun.
